It is that time of year again, the Peppermint Mocha is here, the Christmas blend is brewing, the Elf on the Shelf has returned and the holiday music is cranking in the stores. Best of all, beginning November 28, 2023 and running through December 31, 2023 Starbucks is bringing back their Starbucks for Life Game for the holiday season.
If you haven’t played Starbucks for Life before, here’s what you need to know. It is a fun little game where you can earn anything from bonus stars to holiday drinks to FREE STARBUCKS FOR LIFE by “collecting” pieces to complete a festive gameboard.
If you are like me and only go to Starbucks once or twice a week, winning this game might seem impossible. BUT… below I am going to give you an overview of how to play and tips on how to play for free and increase your chances of winning by 500%. It’s Easy & FREE!
Starbucks for Life is Back for 2023! Super Secret Ways to Win!
Starbucks has a variety of games throughout the year from the Starbucks Summer Game to Starbucks Starland, but the granddaddy of them all is Starbucks for Life. First things first, this year the Starbucks for Life Game will run from November 28, 2023 to December 31, 2023. Now let’s get into how to play (and win)!
1) How to Play
The game is actually very simple. Last year was all about earning the Starbucks for Life Holiday lights, this year it’s festive game pieces, but the same concept applies. Here’s how to get going:
- You have to be a Starbucks rewards member
- Sign up by going to starbucksforlife.com or via the Starbucks App
- During the promotion period, sign into your Starbucks Rewards account to receive one (1) daily gameplay.
- Follow the links and instructions to play the games: shake the snowglobe once daily to collect a game piece, earn extra plays by completing a task (loading your account, ordering ahead, treating someone, etc.), play Holiday Run to earn power-ups for the game
Shake the snow globe with me and see how to earn a game piece!
2) Earn Extra gameplays with the Starbucks for Life Challenges
As I mentioned above, you can earn some extra gameplays by doing various challenges….some of them are FREE! This is not the super secret trick, I will get to that soon.
This year is different than the past years as each week Starbucks has new challenges to do during the whole period.
Here are some of the challenges available now:
- Load up your account: Reload your Starbucks Card with at least $20 for 1 free play
- Order Ahead: Place an order on the Starbucks app five times for 1 free play
- Treat Someone: Buy two drinks in one transaction 3 times for 1 free play
- Shake It Up: Shake the snow globe 3 days in a row
- Afternoon Pick-Me-Up: Make a Starbucks purchase after 12 pm (your local time) three times for 1 free play
- and MORE!
*Important tip* Make sure to claim the play! Once each challenge is completed, make sure to sign into your account and follow the links and instructions to claim the additional play! If you are a potential winner of a prize, you will then be provided directions for validation.
3) Super Secret Way to Increase your Chances by at least 500%
Look, I love my Starbucks and would love to win Starbucks for Life, but I don’t go enough to win big. However, I have found a SUPER SECRET way I can still earn entries from all the challenges and daily entries for FREE.
There is no need to break from your normal routine to get gameplays. Here is how to do it:
- Scroll to the bottom of the page.
- At the bottom, you will see no purchase necessary and then click here to enter.
- Fill out your name and address.
- Choose the challenge you want to earn entries and click submit!
- In a minute you will receive an email saying to activate your entry and play
- You can do this for every challenge
- Plus you can do the daily entry twice a day, every day.
- You can earn over 100 gameplays for FREE!
What are the Prizes?
Now you know how to play, but what are you playing for? Like I said, there are tons of prizes. In addition to 5 people winning Starbucks for Life this year, here are some of the other epic prizes.
- Starbucks for Life (5 lucky winners this year!)
- Delta Air Lines gift card
- Moccamaster grinder and custom brewer
- Starbucks + Stanley Quencher H2.0 FlowState™ Tumbler
- A chance to win a $500 Starbucks Gift Card with every sweepstakes entry
- Bonus Stars and Starbucks Gift Cards can be won instantly by shaking the snowglobe!
What are your chances to win Starbucks for Life?
There are 5 Starbucks for life rare game pieces that will be given out during the promotion. The estimated value of winning Starbucks for Life is $64,605.00.
The odds might not be in your favor to win Starbucks for life, but I have won hundreds of bonus stars and some free drinks with my super secret method (no free Starbucks for life #sadface)! I would say that is well worth it considering it takes just a minute or two each day, less time than a Starbucks run!
Think of all the delicious Caramel Brulee Lattes that you can sip on this holiday season, and hopefully, you will win one of the big prizes, like Starbucks for a month, Starbucks for a year, or best yet Starbucks for Life! Good Luck!
